What are the career opportunities available to me after graduation?

  • The paths students take post-graduation depends greatly on where each individual is at in their career when they enter the program. We see at least four pathways of specialization or outputs from the program:
    • Translational Medicine: Individuals involved in investigation (discovery science or clinical research);
    • Translational Science: Individuals interested in helping research solutions to medical needs based in discovery science, but transformed into tangible applications.
    • Knowledge Translation: individuals who want to communicate research to target audiences in order to change practices or policies that improve health outcomes;
    • Implementation Science: individuals who want to study the impact of innovations—transformations of discovery science—on healthcare delivery for evidence-based medicine.
  • The National Center for the Advancement of Translational and Clinical Science has recently identified the needs for a “Translational Science” workforce.  However, there is as yet no official profession of translational science, and many of the programs developed in the area are relatively new.
  • However, professional graduate programs in the United States associated with Translational Science have indicated that graduates have found work in the following sectors:
    • Industry
    • Entrepreneurial ventures
    • Research Institutes
    • Governmental jobs
    • Clinical practice
    • Graduate school
